Max the Sensitive Robot

Max is different from the other robots; he can feel the pain of others. The other robots say Max is not robotic enough to be one of them and the only human who understands Max is his creator, Dr. Remington. Max struggles to find a place for himself in the world while continuing to help others.A warming climate has allowed tropical diseases to spread to every corner of the globe and the ensuing health crisis has dragged much of the planet into anarchy. Protected by the sea, Britain maintains order, but the need for daily doses of medication mean the pharmaceutical companies now pull the strings.With a monopoly and never-ending demand, life is good for those who work for them, but when Emma's mother falls ill and the company refuses to treat her, she's forced to turn to a group of dissidents attempting to throw off the chemical yoke.When word of a possible cure reaches them, they ask Emma to steal it. If she's caught, she’ll disappear for good, but it’s the price for saving her mum, or are they just using her? Either way, time is running out.If you’re a fan of Children of Men, V for Vendetta, 1984 or similar tales of government-controlled dystopia then you’ll love A Nation of Addicts.This is a novelette of ~8,500 words (28 pages)
